Bomber via crossroads. Pours out a nice mostly clear copper color with a pillow white head. Aroma is of nice citra hops, that juicy lightly tropical, citrusy stuff. Light caramel and a little grain. Taste is a nice showcase of the hop without get no punched with ibu’s which I usually like but in this case it is okay. Some light grainy malt and some bread round this out and a slight lingering bitterness.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 8/21/15

Aroma: The nose is citrus hops, some earthy notes, and a bit of caramel
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear orange color with a frothy-foam head and fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor is on the hoppy side, but not super bitter, citrusy and clean overall
Palate: The feel is fairly clean, with a light-medium body, and a mid-dry finish
Overall Impression: I’ve had a couple of Knee Deep beers where I felt like the hops were a little stake testing, and I couldn’t tell if that was the beer or the store not watching their inventory (I’m looking at you every store on Long Island). Anyway, this treated much fresher. If this is what Knee Deep beers are usually like, I am intrigued.

On tap at Apex, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma and flavour brings out notes of citrus, biscuity malt, and floral notes. Really well-balanced, dry and flavourful. Excellent.

Acid303 (495) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUL 18, 2015
65cl bottle, served in tulip glass. Pours golden with one finger of froth on top. Citrusy aroma, orange peel and hints of mango. Same taste, actually the citrusy flavour is not dominant at all. Bitter and caramel-ish aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light/medium-sticky, carbonation is ok. Nice refreshing beer.

On tap at APEX. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A nice light citrus nose. Smooth, oranges, light biscuit, some toast. Sweet, not sugary citrus, light bitterness- almost none. Good.

Bottle. Golden body with a white head. Aroma of light pine and resin, grapefruit, toasted grain, herbs. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light aroma and flavor for a 7% beer, but balanced taste of pine, citrus, lemon, resin, grapefruit. Clean malt backbone. Simple, but crisp and tasty.

Solid, very nice, if not outstanding IPA. In my view, well-made beer, with the usual signature pine and citrus, hoppy follow through. Enjoyed it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
